VH1 or Vh1 (known as VH-1: Video Hits One from 1985 to 1994) is an American cable television network based in New York City. Launched on January 1, 1985 in the old space of Turner Broadcasting's short-lived Cable Music Channel, the original purpose of the channel was to build on the success of MTV by playing music videos, but targeting a slightly older demographic than its sister channel, focusing on the lighter, softer side of popular music. The channel was originally created by Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment, at the time a division of Warner Communications and owner of MTV. Both VH1 and its sister channel MTV are currently part of the MTV Networks division of corporate parent Viacom. While VH1 still occasionally plays music videos and the Top 20 Video Countdown, its more recent claim to fame has been in the area of music-related reality programming, such as Behind the Music, the I Love the... series, the Celebreality block of programming, and the channel's overall focus on popular culture.

VH1 presented the 40 Greatest Internet Superstars on March 23, 2007. This is the clip featuring my Numa story. I am very honored to have received the "#1 Internet Celebrity" title and feel very fortunate to be a part of something that brings happiness into the world. It is encouraging to watch all of the Numa videos that were created by others in the same fun-loving spirit regardless of what part of the globe they happen to live. Smiles are universal. Happiness knows no culture or geography. Joy is bipartisan. Be kind to everyone - for everyone is having a hard time. This clip is used by permission from VH1. A special thanks to them for putting together such a first class production!
